I’ve never been to Florida but I have a good friend who lives in Orlando and from what she says… sounds about right 🙂 Aren’t there a lot of tourists in Miami too though?

I’m in the pink! And believe me Tourist Trap is a perfect description. Luckily, I live far enough away from Orlando, to not get as much of it. I live in Ocala, Fl which is mostly historic, rolling hills, oak trees, and lots of sunshine!

We found our wedding venue in Tavares, about an hour south of us, and it is in a little historic small town, so hopefully no tourist problems!

Lees!  I love this, one of the better ones I have seen so far!  

I love the, “You were 25 when you first met someone who couldn’t swim.”  This was TOTALLY true for me.

I love this! 

The four seasons are: Almost Summer, Summer, Not Summer but Still Hot, and Christmas. 

You tell your friends you are going to school in South Carolina and they are terrified you will freeze “up north” (I am, actually)

You learned to swim before you could walk (actually a safety thing, to be honest)

Everyone you know has been on a swim team. 

You know why flamingos are pink. 

You never speed in Waldo. 

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites 🙁 

You have to drive north to get to the South. 

You know Publix is the best grocery store ever (mmm Publix subs! Publix wedding cakes! ) 

You have a drawer full of bathing suits but one sweatshirt.

Socks are only for bowling. 

Orange juice comes from the tree in your yard. 

You know what a tangelo is! Yum!

I’m proud to say that even though I was born in Florida, and  I was “forced” to leave with my parents as a toddler to live in Canada, I can actually relate to most of this list! Luckily I visit as often as I can!

LOL love this list … laughed the whole way through because it is so true! Lived in FL until I was 20, then moved to Cali. Similar weather, no hurricanes 🙂 Oooh someone here is from Ocala, I grew up in a tiny town an hour from you, and have an aunt that lives in Ocala.
